    egt - put it in the drivers side exhaust manifold (pre turbo). This will get you the best numbers and has been known to be the hotter side, thus letting you know when the car is getting lean right away.

    oil pres - did you buy a sandwich adapter? Some people use gallery plugs on the engine, but I don't know where they are located. Might want to do a search...it should help you some.

    hope that helps.

    haha small world ya know...

    of course I'll have to mention the usual 'search' button. Also take a look at the stickies in the top of the engine performance sub forum.

    With that said my first mods would be:

    EM - Accessport does well, utec too
    uppipe/downpipe - at the same time (much easier)
    catback - boxer rumble
    springs - gets rid of that awful understeer
    better tires - re92's are horrible

    And I'll add the driving school to be better at handling all your new found power. I have all of the above, including gauges lol, and enjoy the car very much.
